police say t well tonight two oakland women are behind bars accused of taking a 4 h month on hold baby on a crime spree. all caught on tape. raven stewart and her friend, lashay rodriguez, started breaking into cars in berkeley and emeryville at about noon last friday. officers caught them about 8:00 p.m. after a security camera captured one of the crimes in emeryville. police sent the women's pictures to local security firms and they were spotted trying to return some stolen items to a target store. >> women don't tend to be the ones that go around doing burglaries in the daytime. but what really through us for a loop is the fact they had a 4- month-old baby with them. >> that child was taken into protective custody and later turned over to another family member. the two women are scheduled to appear in court tomorrow. here is a stunning fact. americans spend 70 to 90% of their lives indoors. and for millions of workers, most of that time is spent at
the office. elizabeth cook on what that can mean for your health. >> so it becomes a bit steal. >> they are talking about office air. >> there is a lot of talk about who controls the thermostat. >> how it can make you sick. >> one person gets sick it goes around to everyone else. >> reporter: they are not imagining it. millions of office workers suffer from building-related symptoms. >> 41% report at least 1 symptom that is related to their building and 20% report at least 3 symptoms. >> reporter: mark mandell with the state department of health says even though most symptoms are minor like headaches, kickoff and sniffles, some are more serious. >> they could range from asthma attacks, allergic responses, respiratory infections. >> reporter: what's causing it all? >> there's hundreds if not thousands of chemicals in offices. >> reporter: at the department's richmond lab they are analysing materials like partly board and firer board that a lot of furniture is made
from to identify those chemicals. >> the one that's most well understood is formaldehyde and that is known to cause irritation at levels that are commonly found indoors. >> reporter: compounding it all, lack of fresh air. most office windows don't open. so you're at the mercy of the building's ventilation system. the e.p.a. estimates that 50% of all office buildings don't provide enough fresh air. just increasing ventilation rates would have a huge impact according to a new report out of the lawrence berkeley lab. >> we would reduce the average health impact and increase worker performance. >> reporter: bill fisk authored the study and says the economy would benefit too. >> the economic benefits from that would be 10 to $20 billion a year. the cost of doing it would be about 2/10ths of a billion dollars a year. >> reporter: bon building that is doing it right? the new department of education office in sacramento. >> this is truly a trend-setter for the state. >> reporter: bill ogden helped
design it and took us on a tour. the experience starts at the front door where people coming in pass over a special great. what do these do? >> they clean the dirt and the other particulates off the bottom of your feet so you don't bring them into the building. >> reporter: but the big thing is the unique ventilation system. air comes in from the floor rather than the ceiling, and there is a vent in each cubicle. >> that allows each person to adjust the amount of air they are getting in their work space. most. >> reporter: most of the air is coming from the outside. this giant win do is supplying all the air for the entire building and all the air coming through here is filtered through these little help a filters. so all the things that cause sneezes and coughs are tick stopped right here. workers love it. >> the old building had a musty feeling but it has never felt that way here. >> reporter: since she moved into the building 5 years ago
she has been sick a lot less. >> i think it's important for management and administration to have a strong part in providing a work environment that is healthy. >> reporter: elizabeth cook, cbs5. well if you had a long, hard day at work going to happy hour might not actually help you unwind. according to some experts who say that tossing back a few drinks after a stressful day can actually make you feel even worse. according to a small university of chicago study drinking alcohol while frazzled can affected the affect the way your body manages chavez they say that can actually keep you feeling tense long after the cocktails have worn off. >> the real happy hour is when the sun comes out. yes, sir. right roberta. >> eh. have the eh, ken bastida, i have a question for you. i have been asking why we have the crown jewel illuminated on
